Characters come to life in Bristol parade’s ‘living history’ float

If you’re looking to celebrate July 4th in the Ocean State, head to the oldest parade in the country’s history.

This year, the characters from TEN31 Productions will be coming to life in a float titled ‘living history’.

The popular gargoyles that have been a staple at WaterFire Providence for years will now be branching out, and turning into icons of American history.

Joe Pari and Eric Auger from TEN31 Productions joined the Rhode Show Tuesday, and spoke about the characters in the ‘living bronze’ collection that will be making an appearance in Bristol.

“All of our costumes take about a month to design and fabricate everything, then we work with the makeup processes that we have to create a great seamless finish,” said Joe Pari.

TEN31 Productions is also planning to bring a group of pirates to life later this summer at WaterFire Providence.
